Check Out This Awesome Game-Used Masks Collection!

Recently I heard from a regular visitor to this site, which I appreciate. I'm always glad to receive messages or comments, because it means people are visiting and using my blog.

He has a really fantastic collection of game-used goalie masks (NHL, International, AHL/Minors, and some odds and ends.)

He's a collector, not a seller, so these aren't for sale:

But I thought you all might enjoy seeing them, I know I did. Just seeing them all on the shelves was pretty amazing.

Thanks again for reaching out, I enjoyed talking to you!

Alexander Georgiev 2018-19 Mask

Alexander Georgiev of the New York Rangers (born February 10, 1996 in Ruse, Bulgaria.)

Artist: David Gunnarsson

My friend Alex Georgiev had an awesome idea for his new New York Rangers mask. He is a big fan of the Russian art style Gzhel. And I also love it, the blue wavy lines created with a gentle brush. Alex and I were thinking who could help us paint the Gzhel paintings. Since the mask will have a Russian tribute paint, how about ask a Russian matryoshka doll if she could help us paint the Gzhel paintings on the mask on the NYC brickwall. So on the the side of the mask the matryoshka doll pop up with her blue brush.

I couldn't find any good in-game photos.
